Illinois House Approves Transfer Of Animal Disease Lab To KC

House Bill 1744 recently passed the Illinois House of Representatives with a unanimous vote permitting the Illinois Department of Agriculture to sell the Animal Disease Lab in Centralia to Kaskaskia College for one dollar. Representative John Cavaletto said, “This is a win-win situation for Kaskaskia College and the taxpayers of Illinois to allow for an unutilized facility to be used for student instruction instead of sitting abandoned.” The legislation now goes to the Senate and then to the Governor.
